When my schedule allows it I try to fit in some "just for me" portrait sessions. One of my goals for the studio is to go on little weekend excursions to hold traveling location sessions. Over the summer I did a trial run, just to get a feel of what it would be like to hold a session like this. Let me just say, it was amazing.
I took this opportunity to take my kids camping at one of my favorite camping spots, and then had them be my assistants at the portrait session. Something about spending the night in the woods prepared my heart for the portrait session, made me super focused in peaceful.. and probably a little bit smelly =)
I loved everything about this little experiment. I loved the experience of going somewhere out of my norm for a portrait session. I loved the excitement my clients had for this special opportunity, and I loved showing this little treasure hidden about an hour away from the studio. And of course these images are just so magical! I will slowly start offering sessions to where I have to travel away from the DFW area. To be able to offer something a little different than you can get anywhere else, to set Braly Studios apart.. Maybe we will make an event out of it. Keep following up on my facebook page, and even with the newsletter so you will be informed about all the fun opportunities coming up with the studio!
